Read this in a book about SATURATED FAT (must read)
"Here's something I'll bet you never thought about. A good portion of this fat that you burn all day comes from stored body fat, and human body fat is highly saturated. The body constantly turns over its fat reserves. This leads to a large release of saturated animal fat, all day, into your bloodstream. Your fat 'is' animal fat.
If you diet, you lose alot of your body fat. Why don't cholesterol and triglycerides go up in response to your body's cannibalizing its own fat? The fat pours out of your fat cells when you're losing weight. That's what you're losing -- fat; highly saturated animal fat from Red Meat fat. And, it's your own Red Meat fat! Oh, I know, you're not eating Red Meat anymore (for everyone who shuns red meat). You are, however, piling Red Meat into your blood. Guess what? Cholesterol and triglycerides drop when you lose weight on a lower-carb diet.
You actually become healthier with all this fat pouring into your blood. Why, then, do you shun fat at the dinner table? The American Heart Association (AHA) has the burden of explaining why dietary fat is a risk factor for heart disease, but your own fat isn't.
And the carbohydrates you eat, those wonderful, healthful carbohydrates, when converted to fat, as I've explained, appear in the blood as, you guessed it, SATURATED FAT. So, carbohydrates are the source of saturated animal fat."

- I'm more worried about trans fat than saturated fats in the first place.
But remember, this isn't an excuse to go wild on bacon fat, either.#2; Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:17:00 GMT

- I mean I dont want you to just say 'Saturated Fat is bad for you.' I want some proven studies from anyone telling us all how it is bad for optimal health. Cause I can pull up some information saying it isnt.#4; Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:19:00 GMT
- You body uses different mechanisms and has a diffrent system of diffusing your own body fat into the blood stream than animal fat you consume through your diet. Assuming both are the same, is wrong. You body does not store high amounts of cholesterol when it pushes fat into stores, so when the stores are expended the cholesterol levels do not rise significantly. On the other hand, food you consume that is high in saturated fat causes much more cholesterol to enter the blood stream because your body has to go through the initial phase of processing it. I do not advocate a diet with no saturated fat or high saturated fat, BALANCE is the key.#5; Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:20:00 GMT

Bacon fat is only 1/3 saturated fat.#6; Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:21:00 GMT
- Quote:I eat the hell outta steak... once a day at least. But bacon... I eat turkey bacon because pork is calorically dense and not as good of a protein as poultry or red meat. I can eat 35% more turkey bacon for the same calories=== Original Words ===Bacon fat is only 1/3 saturated fat.#7; Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:22:00 GMT
- which is the entire reason why people who go on low carb diets improve their cholesterol so much.#8; Sat, 22 Mar 2008 04:23:00 GMT
